Street Style

Street Style



Equipment silk shirt 
Topshop tall jacket 
Ksubi skinny leg jeans 
Giuseppe Zanotti shoes 
CÉLINE leather bag 
Vita Fede Bangles 
Barts beanie hat
Ray-Ban metal sunglasses
NARS nail poilish


Hihi. Today's outfit was inspired by the unnecessarily cold weather we are experiencing in LA.  Also, I am all about being comfy at work and that's where the Giuseppe Zanotti high tops come in.  I'm into the high tops, but not so much the heeled high tops.  I think this outfit is trendy and functional.  You can fit your laptop and dog in the Celine bag and still have room for whatever.  I checked out the Celine bags at Nordstroms this weekend.  They are HUGE, but so chic...


Happy Wednesday!

Nude Monday


Nude Monday



Equipment silk shirt   
H&M slit skirt cheaper one here
Chloé high heels cheaper ones here and here
Marni clutch cheaper one here
Victoria Beckham  cheaper ones here
NARS Cosmetics  
NARS Cosmetics lip makeup 
Serge Lutens perfume

Hihi. Hope everyone had a great weekend.  I've been spotting these chuncky heeled strapy sandles around.  I think these Chloe ones look great with a leather skirt.  I'm loving the nude and black.  It already feels like spring except its still January :( .  I also recently checked out Victoria Beckham's collection.  She has some great pieces, but they're super pricey.  I found some similar items to the ones in the set for much cheaper.  

Happy Shopping!

Pajama Friday


Casual Friday



Theory silk blouse 
H&M skinny jeans 
Elle Macpherson Intimates soft cup bra 
Charles Philip Shanghai slip on shoes 
Yves Saint Laurent leather tote /  
Crystal bracelet / Illesteva 

Hihi.  Lately, I have been really into these pajama shirts. I might be taking the meaning of casual Friday a little too literally.  Whatever. I think they look great paired with skinny jeans or even flared jeans with heels.  Also, I don't know if you have checked out Vita Fede's website lately, but she has some new bracelets that I am loving.  I really like her titan bracelets, but theomega bracelets are super cute too.  I need to get my hands on a pair!

Why aren't I at home snuggling in my pj's, drinking hot chocolate and listening to the rain?

Happy Friday!

Brunette goes to SD

[aw]
[Cabo Cantina Pacific Beach SD]

Armswag: Marc Jacobs, J.Crew
Shirt: Brandy Melville

Hihi. Sorry for being MIA, I've had a pretty busy weekend.  I went down to San Diego to visit my boyfriend and my sister.  It was my boyfriend's birthday so I took him to Morton's for some juicy steaks.  It was restaurant week in SD so they had set menu's for like $40.  I thought it was great, because usually just a steak at Morton's is $40.  We had a choice of soup/salad, main course with a side and dessert.  I thought it was awesome so did my boyfriend so yay me.  Everything we had was delicious!

Yesterday it was such a gorgeous day in San Diego so my sister and I decided to do one of the trails at Torrey Pines.  We ended up at Blacks Beach, which is apparently a nude beach (fun surprise).  I can't explain how awesome the hike/trail was.  There were parts where you literally have to climb up and I couldn't believe how some people were doing it with surfboards in one hand.  I could barely do it with both of my hands.  Afterwards, we had lunch and stopped by Brandy Melville and Urban Outfitters.  Then we decided to do happy hour at Cabo Cantina.  It was a nice ending to a great day. 

Hope everyone had a nice long weekend!

Channeling Olivia Palermo


Channeling Olivia Palermo



HandM leggings
Miu Miu clutch
Barney's NY double knit scarf

Hihi. The inspiration for this outfit came from Olivia Palermo's street style.  She was spotted wearing this gorgeous yellow pea coat and loafers.  I think the outfit is effortless and super chic.  Also, I think this lemon zest yellow will be big for spring.

Golden Globe Picks



 Hihi.  After watching the Golden Globes last night I though I would share with you my favorite outfits from the night.  My favorite was Jennifer Garner's sequined Vivienne Westwood gown.  I thought she looked beautiful and the dress fit her perfectly.  I loved the color of Jessica Alba's Oscar de la Renta gown and Jessica Chastain's Calvin Klein collection dress.  I wish Jessica Chastain's dress fit  her better.  I thought the waistline was a bit off.  Kate Hudson looked stunning as usual in her Alexander McQueen dress.  I love her so that might be a biased opinion.  Regardless, I think she always gets it right when it comes to the red carpet.  J. Lo looked gorgeous in her see through Zuhair Murad. I wish she would find something that's not see through or lace to wear....Last, but not least Amy Adams in Marchesa.  I thought Amy could've spiced things up with some more jewlery since the dress is such a dull color, but I loved the dress!

Happy Monday!!

I want. Wednesday: Bootie edition


I want. Wednesday: Bootie edition

I want. Wednesday: Bootie edition by losangelesbrunette featuring high heels


Hihi.  I have been looking for the perfect bootie for awhile now.  I have my mind set on these Rag and Bone Harrow booties.  Since, I can't afford the Rag & Bone version, I have been on a hunt for a similar pair.  I haven't been very successful, but here are some reasonably priced booties in various styles.  The Dolce Vita booties are starting to grow on me....

Happy Wedensday!

Mint for Winter


Jeans: J Brand
T-shirt: Gap
Purse: Forever21
Shoes: L.A.M.B
Necklace: Brandy Melville
Sweater: H&M (old) similar here
Jacket: Forever21(old) similar here

Hihi. Friday night my boyfriend and I went to Fathers Office in Santa Monica to get some drinks.  I thought I would change things up a bit by wearing my mint jeans from the summer.  I think pairing the jeans with darker color items makes them work for the winter season.  I kept my accessories simple by wearing my Brandy Melville bar necklace.  Hope you all had a great weekend!

Happy Monday..............

Sale on sale on sale

Sale on sale on sale


Hihi.  I have been feeling pretty uninspired lately.  Sorry for the mini hiatus.  I thought I'd share the fabulous shoes I found this weekend.  We went to the outlets for some after Christmas sales and stopped by Saks Off Fifth.  They had these amazing Jimmy Choo sandals on sale for like free!! I'm kidding. They were marked down so much that they came out to ~$200, which I thought was a steal.  Cheers to my first pair of Jimmy Choo's!! Now, I just need to put together an outfit.  Maybe for the next post ;)

Happy New Year y'all
